GUIDABLE INCLUSIONS - The crux of Mobile Apps Testing

A mobile app for every small aspect in our life is the in thing today. Be it talking to your family millions of miles away or simply clicking a picture and letting the whole world know in a matter of few seconds "how good a photographer you are!", there is an app for everything.Business rely on these apps to build brand value, to spread their wings farther and most importantly, to make their customer’s life easy. While, these apps are a great way for the customers to interact with the businesses, it is extremely annoying to the customers when these apps do not function the way they are supposed to. Testing these apps becomes extremely important before of in most cases even after the customer has started using the app. GUIDABLE INCLUSIONS is not just a mnemonic but a framework which lets you explore your app in the best possible way giving you results which you would have normally missed. It helps you look beyond the UI aspect or as they say the "look and feel" of the app and notice how your apps react in response to the way you interact with them or vice versa.

    Sargis Sargsyan - Better Page Object Handling with Loadable Component Pattern

    45 Mins

    One of the painful problems in Selenium automated testing is determining whether a HTML page has been loaded. This is especially the case when web application uses a JS  heavy framework such as the popular AngularJS.

    During this talk we will discuss how to handle Selenium Page Object pattern better with Loadable Component.

    The Loadable Component helps test case developers make sure that the page or a component of the page is loaded successfully. I will share my experience about the concept of the Loadable Component and Page Object patterns.

    Aditya Garg - Big Data - Hadoop and MapReduce - new age tools for aid to testing and QA

    45 Mins

    BigData with its slew of technologies and terms has been the most talked about area in last couple of years. This has evolved in Big Data Science, Analytics and now on the IoT and automation side. There is a need for testers and QA team to not only get used to this new age digital transformation area but at the same time embrace the technology to their own advantage. We have experimented and successfully used Big Data Technologies – Hadoop and MapReduce for a recent testing engagement. The actual application was implemented using classic technologies like CentOS and C++. Testing team implemented Hadoop and MapReduce to help in quick turnaround for the testing. We would like to showcase the entire case study on how the tools and technologies came in handy for a High Frequency Trading (HFT) application and had we not implemented the same what would we have missed. We would also share the entire CentOS/Hadoop/MapReduce VM with the participants. This would require the attendees to bring their own laptop with at least 4GB RAM (Available) so that they do some hands on exercises that we would like to share.

    KarthiKeyan Balasubramanian - How to use Mind waves in Testing Application

    45 Mins

    On a Thursday night few months ago, I arrived home for a family dinner, greeted at the door by my mother. It took no more than a few seconds for her to notice that I wasn’t my usual cheery self. She knew the exact remedy to liven me up: a bowl of Mum’s delicious soup and our favorite '80s playlist, which got both of us grooving and singing along. Before long, I was laughing joyfully, my worries and concerns temporarily suspended. These simple steps were so obvious to my mother, yet completely out of the realm of possibility for a computer. Computing applications primarily respond to what you explicitly direct them to do. They can’t observe your mood or feelings and respond intuitively. I couldn't help but wonder back then whether it might be possible to introduce this whole realm of human interaction to human - computer interaction. Could technology be developed that not only understands what you direct it to do, but also knows how to respond to your moods, and emotional cues?

    So my the topic goes with " Mind Control Testing " in which their will be a detailed presentation and a demo of 1. What is mind waves? 2. How to read the mind waves and use it to test a quality of application? 3. How it can be used in end user acceptance testing ? 4. How mind waves can be used to improve the quality software and production at the end user level And finally a small demo of my software which will read the brain waves and plot a graph and with a result saying 1. How attentive the user is 2. How cool the user is 3. How many times the user is blinking the eyes While using the application And a lot more fun & interesting things will be added on during the presentation...!
